The high stress, low cycle fatigue test were carried out on HT80 plates with artificial part-through notch. The LBB conditions by the net section stress approach was examined in detail. Finite element methods for the state of deformation were also applied and the results were compared with the results from experiments. From the test results, it was noted that the LBB condition in fatigue test was dependent upon the maximun load change before and after the crack penetration. The LBB criterion By the net section stress approach were slightly dependent on initial crack size. It was shown that the state of deformation can be used to predict whether the component is likely to show LBB condition or they will be broken rapidly.
